        Author of the classic novel, Lorna Doone, pens a letter of thanks to an American friend

      Teddington, England, 1883. 3.5" x 5.25". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""R.D. Blackmore"", two pages, 3.5"" X 5.25"", Teddington, 1883. Addressed to ""My dear Miss Derby"". Letter and address panel are affixed to cover stock measuring 8.5"" X 11.5"".Soiling to address panel, small loss to page 2 in blank lower corner, otherwise letter and panel are in fine condition. In full, ""Your very beautiful & kind token of good will & remembrance has reached us; & we have great pleasure in feeling & expressing gratitude, & hearty wishes for your welfare. It often is both a comfort & a stay, to remember that kind friends, fairly won, think of us sometimes with goodness. / For my part, I never get half the good will &; kindly consideration from the English public wh[ich] I am proud to have won from the far more sensitive & quick race, across the ocean. And herein I share the experience of many of the English writers. / But as to yourself, I hope (& so does my good wife, who often talks of you) that you are spending as happy a time, as a happy nature sh[oul]d ensure you. And with renewal of thanks, I am, Dear Miss Derby, / Very sincerely yours / (signed) R.D. Blackmore."" Blackmore was thought to be a recluse, as he preoccupied himself with the demands of writing and fruit growing at Teddington. He did, however, have a number of very intimate friends with whom he met regularly. His works had a wide following in the United States and during his life he formed many friendships with Americans. An Autograph Letter Signed, ""A.K.H. Boyd"" was affixed to the verso of the card stock. It is now detached without damage. Dr. Boyd was a Scottish minister who wrote ""The Country Parson"" essays. The signature of Mehemmed [Ali] Pasha, in English and Arabic, is affixed to the verso."

      . Im Laufe seiner künstlerischen Ausbildung ging der schleswig-holsteinische Maler Georg Burmester, nach einer zweijährigen Zwischenstation an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie, im Jahre 1883 nach Karlsruhe in die Klasse Gustav Schönlebers. Nach Beendigung seiner küstlerischen Ausbildung kehrte er 1895 in seine Heimat zurück um sich in Möltenort, an der Kieler Förde, nieder zu lassen. Von 1912 bis 1930 lehrte er an der Kasseler Kunstakademie. Durch Schönleber angeregt, widmete er sich vorwiegend dem Thema der Landschaft. Orientiert am französischen Impressionismus schuf er athmosphärisch dichte Landschaftsgemälde..

Modern marbled wrappers.

      Franken 1375 (note); Meijer, "Het oude doolhof te Amsterdam", in: Oud Holland vol. 1 (1883), pp. 119-135; Spies, De Amsterdamse doolhoven, pp. 70-71. Extremely rare booklet (only one other copy could be traced), the first edition with a description by Jan Vos of a garden, or amusement park, called 'Oude Doolhof' (Old Labyrinth or maze), published as a souvenir or 'flyer'. This first Doolhof, called the 'Oude Doolhof', was founded at the Looiersgracht at Amsterdam by the wine merchant and inn-keeper Vincent Jacobsz. Coster before 1625. In fact it was a kind of combination of a seventeenth-century 'Madame Tussauds' and an amusement park. The garden was composed of a labyrinth in which fountains and automata were displayed, showing historical & biblical figures and spectacles. The illustrations, according to Franken implicitly after C. van de Passe (who lived also at the Looiersgracht at the time), show the sights and spectacles of this labyrinth. The lower corner of the title-page and the first plate gone. Very good copy of this rare souvenir.

        The Bakhtyar Nama: a Persian Romance. Translated from a Manuscript Text by Sir William Ouseley. Edited by W. A. Clouston

      [n.p.]: privately printed [by William Burns of Larkhall, Lanarkshire], 1883. One of 300 copies. li, [i], 232 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary olive morocco by J. Leighton, Brewer St., covers with gilt-ruled border with small arabesque cornerpieces, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and third compartments, the others with repeat decoration in gilt centered on a stylized floral sprig tool, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt (light scuffing to extremities). Provenance: Janey Morris (presentation inscription from Clouston 'To Mrs. Morris / from the Editor' on ffep. INSCRIBED TO JANE MORRIS A fine copy with an important provenance, probably bound for presentation. Ouseley's translation was first published in 1800 but by the 1880s was rare: Clouston, an Orkney-born folk-lorist, took the view that it was worth reprinting. He contributed to Burton's Supplemental Arabian Nights. William Morris's interest in the sagas and Clouston's work on folk-lore would probably be where their circles of interest intersected?

        Recollections of the Kabul Campaign, 1879 & 1880

      London: W. H. Allen & Co.,, 1883. Octavo. Original red cloth neatly repaired, gilt lettered spine, drab brown endpapers. Mounted photographic portrait frontispiece of General Roberts, 7 lithographic plates (3 folding), folding map. Discreet book label of Maurice F. I'Anson on front free endpaper. Spine sunned, touch of foxing to frontispiece and title. First edition of this uncommon account of the advance of the Kurum Field Force to Kabul, the occupation of the city, and of Roberts's march on Kandahar. The author served in the Bengal medical service during the Second Afghan War. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the title page: "Sir Charles Macgregor, with the Author's very kind regards, London June 1883". An attractive association copy: Macgregor (1840-1887) army officer, explorer, and military strategist, played a prominent part in the campaign; "when the second phase of the war began, Macgregor was appointed chief of staff to Sir Frederick Roberts, accompanying the advance from Ali Khel in the Kurram valley across the Shutar Gardan Pass. He took an active part in the battle of Charasia, capture of Kabul, and occupation of the Sherpur cantonment. On 11 December 1879 Macgregor recaptured from the enemy the four abandoned British guns at Kala-i-Aoshar outside Kabul. He took a leading part in the defence of Sherpur and the subsequent fighting in Maidan and Wardak. When Sir Donald Stewart arrived from Kandahar, Macgregor became his chief of staff until the defeat at Maiwand. Macgregor then commanded the 3rd infantry brigade of Sir Frederick Roberts's Kabul?-Kandahar field force during the march to Kandahar, and was present at the final victory over Ayub Khan's army on the banks of the Arghandab" (ODNB).

        Eigenh. Albumblatt mit U.

      Aflenz, 27. VI. 1883.. ½ S. Gr.-8vo. Beiliegend ein gedr. Portrait.. Zitat nach Martial, Epigrammata X, 47: "Quod sis, esse velis, nihilque malis". - Hyrtls wissenschaftliche Reputation gründet wesentlich in seinem "Lehrbuch der Anatomie des Menschen mit Rücksicht auf physiologische Begründung und praktische Anwendung" (1846), das in alle wichtigen Weltsprachen übersetzt wurde. Mit dem insbesondere für die chirurgische Praxis bestimmten "Handbuch der topographischen Anatomie" (1847) verhalf er, der als erster die Bedeutung der Anatomie für die medizinische Praxis erkannte und diese mit der Chirurgie verband, dieser Disziplin im deutschen Sprachraum zu wissenschaftlicher Anerkennung. Die anatomische Technik bereicherte er u. a. durch neue Korrosions- und Injektionsverfahren.

        Théorie mathématique des phénomènes électro-dynamiques uniquement déduite de l'expérience. Deuxième édition 1883

      - Second, deluxe edition of "Ampère's greatest work," Theorie Mathematique? or Memoir on the Mathematical Theory of Electrodynamic Phenomena, Uniquely Deduced from Experience (DSB). Widely referred to as "the Principia of Electrodynamics," with this work Ampère founded the science of electrodynamics, now known as electromagnetism. "Volta's invention of the pile c. 1800 made it possible to experiment with steady electric currents and led to Oersted's discovery, in 1820" of an action of electricity on magnets that suggested "the presence of a magnetic force that is perpendicular both to the direction of the wire and to the shortest line from the wire to the magnet" - to the orientation one would expect. (Torretti, The Philosophy of Physics, 82). "Ampère, after an extraordinary bout of experimentation and mathematical theorizing, succeeded in explaining electromagnetic interaction by central forces acting at a distance? Ampère accounts for all electrodynamic and electromagnetic phenomena known to him by a force acting at a distance between infinitesimal elements of electric current, along the line joining them. According to Ampère's Law, any two such elements interact with a force directed along the line joining them and proportional to the product of their current intensities multiplied by a function of their directions and divided by their distance squared" (ibid). "Ampère also provided a physical understanding of the electromagnetic relationship, theorizing the existence of an "electrodynamic molecule" (the forerunner of the idea of the electron) that served as the component element of both electricity and magnetism. Using this physical explanation of electromagnetic motion, Ampère developed a physical account of electromagnetic phenomena that was both empirically demonstrable and mathematically predictive" (Wikipedia). In 1827 Ampère published the first edition of this volume and has been known since as this field's founding father. "A religious man, Ampère believed that he had proven the existence of the soul and of God" (Pickover, The Physics Book, 172). CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: A. Hermann. Lancaster: American Institute of Physics. 4to (11 x 7.5 inches). [6], 164 pages, [2 large 20 inch fold-out plates], 2. Complete deluxe edition. Beautifully rebound in half-calf over marbled paper boards, gilt-ruled at the edge of the boards and at the spine. Black morocco spine label, gilt-lettered. New endpapers. Very slight toning at the edges of the first few pages; otherwise bright and very clean throughout. Very good condition.
